Got Dry Air? Crane DROP Humidifier Review

Got Dry Air? Crane DROP Humidifier Review

We’ve reviewed humidifiers before but if you’re looking for something smaller, you might like the DROP humidifier by Crane. You can pretty much find their humidifiers at many retail locations for under $50 so we always assumed it was another throw away item. Boy were we wrong! Hit the jump for my review.

Runner's Knees Be Gone, Opedix Tights Review

Runner’s Knees Be Gone, Opedix Tights Review

As part of my ongoing research to “Be a 10 in 2010″, I reached out to a company called Opedix who makes a line of support clothing designed for active and athletic people. Their ethos is interesting; clothes that provide proper support and alignment without sacrificing mobility. I got my hands on their Knee Support System (tights) which have been clinically proven to reduce wear and tear on the knees. As someone who has suffered from runner’s knee, I needed to try it.

Review: naoLoop Loft Your Handy Organizer

Review: naoLoop Loft Your Handy Organizer

To the layman the naoLoop Loft is nothing but a glamorized sheet of metal bended in three places; powder coated and has tension straps to hold things in place. But herein lays the difference: layman vs actual user aka me! I have been using the naoLoop Loft for the past three months and can tell you this; it sure is a handy organizer especially in a house populated with four adults and two children!

Custom & Tailored, Shirts My Way Review

Custom & Tailored, Shirts My Way Review

First impressions are an important. Once the resumes have gone out, the phone calls returned, and the invitation extends to finally meet; it’s time to seal the deal. You need to convey a sense of professionalism and originality in the most subtle of contexts. Fashion plays a key role in emoting all of those ideas. Start with the basic dress shirt, but I want you to go one step further. Get a custom tailored dress shirt and the easiest way is online. Hit the jump for my review of Shirtsmyway.com.

Entertain Yourself: Jamo A 804 Speakers

Entertain Yourself: Jamo A 804 Speakers

In part 1 of our Entertain Yourself series we took a look at the Sony BRAVIA NX800 3D HDTV. It’s our pick for amazing picture quality, industrial design, and packs a wallop of future proof technologies to take you far beyond 2010. Tho the built-in speakers are a wonder in themselves we wanted dedicated speakers. Last year we came across the Jamo A 804 and have been in love ever since.

Entertain Yourself: Sony BRAVIA NX800 3D HDTV

Entertain Yourself: Sony BRAVIA NX800 3D HDTV

In this first of a three-part series called “Entertain Yourself”, I’m going to put together a quick and dirty home entertainment center out of three products I’ve reviewed earlier this year. Mind you, this won’t please the hardcore video or audiophile. I wanted products that seamlessly balance industrial design with home entertainment and as designers, we all know that’s how the general consumer perceives products. I call it utilitarian sex and first up is the stunning BRAVIA NX800 HDTV from Sony.

Portable Subwoofer For Your MacBook

Portable Subwoofer For Your MacBook

Not happy with your MacBook speakers? Sound a little flat don’t they? The Bassjump is a USB powered subwoofer that turns your MacBook into a sweet sound system. It looks like an aluminum Mac mini which perfectly compliments the new unibody aluminum MacBooks. Hit the jump for my review.

Yakima QuickBack is Bike Rack Easy

Yakima QuickBack is Bike Rack Easy

James Owen is well known around these parts for his stunning cat scratching post so when I found out he designed something as utilitarian as a trunk mounted bike rack for Yakima, my cat ears perked up. I’m not an avid bicycler but as the owner of a smaller car, a removable portable rack is perfect to getting me to and from trails around Los Angeles. Hit the jump for my review of the Yakima QuickBack.

What Winsome Ceramic Speakers

What Winsome Ceramic Speakers

I’ve spent a good month+ with Joey Roth’s Ceramic Speakers purposely avoiding all other reviews of it. I wanted nothing to influence me. I was steadfast in going with my gut. No cerebral analyses or intellectualizing what a modern $400+ speaker should look like. Sound isn’t tangible. You have to feel it to know it and that’s how I approached this review. These speakers enabled me to “experience” resplendent audio.

Haoshi X Rings Review

Haoshi X Rings Review

I’m a sucker for unique things and the Haoshi X Rings more than satisfy my wanton needs. I love the Animal Series of rings made of resin set in sterling silver. They’re eye catching, high quality, beautifully designed and unisex. My only regret is not knowing about them sooner to include in our DO WANT! Gift Guide but who needs a holiday to shop! At $75 a ring with 10 animals to choose from – I say go treat yourself and buy one!

iSkin Solo Review

iSkin Solo Review

iPhone cases are a dime a dozen but a handful stand out combining functionality with beautiful design. iSkin is synonymous with protective soft goods so it didn’t surprise me how good the Solo was for the iPhone. It’s crazy affordable and there is a color/design option for every taste. The hardest part is deciding which one to get. Hit the jump for my review.

Malcolm Fontier Mojito Wallet Review

Malcolm Fontier Mojito Wallet Review

Only $20! I bet that caught your attention. It’s no joke. The Mojito Wallet is available at a reduced priced direct from Malcolm Fontier. If the name isn’t familiar – the company makes vegan (synthetic) leather soft goods with lots of style at a fraction of the price. Male readers can probably empathize with my wallet woes. I carry a bulky leather wallet big and heavy enough to change the way I walk. The Mojito is one of the slimmest wallets I’ve seen and for $20, there’s no competition around.

Herman Miller Setu Review

Herman Miller Setu Review

Lets keep it real. The Herman Miller Setu is priced to sell at $650. It’s no Embody but in this economy throwing around over $1k for a chair is wishful. The good folks at Herman Miller sent one to try out and my bum (cue Brits laughing) and back thank you. The supportive mesh and innovative spinal support really do make the difference. Whatever you do, don’t call it a poor man’s Embody. Hit the jump for my review.
